The Granville Soil and Water District invites rising juniors and seniors to apply for the 2019 Resource Conservation Workshop. The week-long session will be held from June 23 through June 28 at N.C. State University and will be helpful for students interested in pursuing further education after high school in Natural Resources and Environmental Studies.
Subjects covered in this workshop will include Soil Characteristics and Soil Conservation, Wildlife and Fisheries Management, Forest Management, Nonagricultural Uses for Soils and Water Quality, and Watershed Management. Most of the classes will be outdoor study and field trips. Recreation will also be available after hours for those who would like to participate.
All expenses – housing, meals, mileage and registration fees – will be paid by the Granville Soil and Water District.
Those interested may request an application through the Soil and Water District office at 518 Lewis Street in Oxford, or through the RCW website at http:www.ncagr.gov/SWC/educational/RCW.html.
